A Brief History of Penguins & Promiscuity

Written by James McLindon
July 7 – 23
Sponsored by Skidmore College

A rollicking new comedy about a love that dare not squawk its name!

Is the stuffy but steady English Lit Professor the true father of his son? Or is it the incredibly ugly Marine Biologist? Or the obnoxious French Waiter? Or the FedEx, DHL or UPS Delivery man? (Not to mention the aspiring Mime…) A simple question becomes hilariously convoluted when the power of Penguin Musk is unleashed on the unsuspecting mother! The LA Times named it a Best Bet that “yields plenty of laughter!”

Souvenir
A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins

Written by Stephen Temperley
July 28 – August 6
Sponsored by Emmet Carter Green Design

Never has so little talent given so much joy, amazement & laughter!

A funny and touching look at Florence Foster Jenkins, the New York Socialite who thought she could sing, but couldn’t – at all! Her recitals became a sensation in the 1930’s with everyone in on the joke except her. Her “career” culminated with a recital at Carnegie Hall. It sold out in two hours! By the end of that concert, her understand­ing of music (and our understanding of her) will both change profoundly.

The Last Romance
